Geography at South Wilts Grammar School for Girls

Course description

This Geography specification offers units that allow a balance between students’ own particular physical, human and / or environmental interests and key geographical topics that provide them with knowledge, understanding and skills for further study at higher education.

Course content

How will you learn?

A range of teaching styles will be used throughout the course, from group based discussions to individual research.  Field work and individual research are key features of this specification. You will develop evaluative skills, learn to identify and analyse the connections between different aspects of Geography and use a range of skills, including the use of maps and images.

Entry requirements

Whilst it is preferable to have GCSE Geography as a foundation, ideally with a B grade, it is not essential.

Assessment

Examination Board: Edexcel

Future opportunities

Geographers are much in demand in many career fields because they have developed skills in research, data handling and interpretation and have a good knowledge of people and environment interactions, at a variety of scales. It combines equally well with science or art subjects. This is a particularly highly valued subject with today’s huge emphasis on climate change and sustainability on a national and global scale. Jobs within these areas are becoming increasingly available.
